Merry Christmas!

In this time of strife and conflict, it does a soul good to stop for a moment and reflect on God's blessings, and the supreme gift of His only begotten son: "And behold an Angel of the Lord stood by them, and the brightness of God shone round about them, and they feared with a great fear. And the Angel said to them: Fear not; for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, that shall be to all the people; for this day is born to you a Saviour, Who is Christ the Lord, in the city of David. And this shall be a sign unto you: You shall find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes, and laid in a manger. And suddenly there was with the Angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God, and saying: Glory to God in the highest and on earth, peace to men of good will."

If his love can bring together the men shown in the photos above (which include Germans, Brits, Yanks, and Italians, too!), then surely it can do so for the rest of the world too.  Celebrate this day knowing that His kingdom will come.

On the more avaricious side of the holiday, here's hoping the floor creaks with the weight of all the lead and rulebooks sure to find their way under your Christmas Tree.

As for me, my presents are due to arrive in the mail any day now.  Saint USPS will be bringing me the start of a 15mm fantasy collection, and at some point in 2016 Osprey's En Garde! ruleset will showup.  In the meanwhile, I've got more than enough toys to keep me occupied.
